So I've gone back to writing articles for Bleacher Report on the topic of the WWE its shows and stars. Two articles that got posted yesterday have hit nearly 5000 reads combined. The month of January is my favorite month of WWE as its leading up to the pay per view event The Royal Rumble, my personal favorite of the year. I'll have more articles leading up to the rumble, you can check out the first two, inside.I've been getting a lot of great feedback on both articles, I'll fully admit here on BOOM page that I'm going the 'Heel' route on Bleacher Report, playing up the bad guy, I mean I figured why not have some fun with it, its about wrestling.
To see the actual articles you can go to the link above WWE BOOM and it will take you to my Bleacher Report Page.
The articles however have generated some boos and nasty comments, but not because of what I thought they would be, instead some people seem to be trying to out bad guy me. Here is a copy of a great letter I got in my email today along with the response that I sent back with him. See the joys and fun you can have when you do something relaxing like blogging.
His words are in red and in CAPS LOCK because that is actually how I got the email, I broke it up to address each of his I guess we'll call them points.
You stated you’re 31 years old, which I’m glad you did, because sometimes its difficult to know if I’m talking to a child or not based on the writing. But since you’re an adult, here’s my response to you:
First, there’s a button on your keyboard it says Caps Lock, shut it off.
I RED YOUR PIECE ON THE VINCE MCMAHON TOPIC ON BLEACHER REPORT
Its spelled READ, as in reading, not redding. Red is a color, also I’m not sure which article you are referring to, my two most recent had to deal with Chris Jericho and Brodus Clay. I’ll assume it’s the Brodus Clay article based on some comments you make below.
HOW OLD ARE YOU.
I’m guessing this was supposed to be a question, you should end those with a question mark, even if its meant to be sarcasm, to answer your would be question, I turned 40 in September, but my Wii fit age says I’m 26, so whichever.
YOU THINK VINCE MCMAHON IS A GENIUS I DONT KNOWWHERE IN YOUR MIND YOU THINK THIS
Vince is a genius, he’s a billionaire, he’s the most successful wrestling promoter of all time, he created Wrestlemania, and even invented Pay Per View, bet you didn’t know that.
YOU MENTIONED TED TURNER ERIC BISCHOFF AND HULK HOGAN PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND NEVER MENTIONED DIXIE CARTER SHES JUST AS BAD AS YOUR ARTICLE.
It should be never mention, not mentioned, I personally don’t know Dixie Carter, what I do know is that TNA is a terrible product from what I’ve seen, I don’t watch on a regular basis, never will.
FACT 1 TED TURNER NEVER RAN WCW JIM HERD RAN WCW FROM WCW BIRTH
Turner owned it, he had some say, he realized he wasn’t winning and he dumped it. Who did he dump it to, the entire property, name and library? Well that would be Mr. McMahon.
ERIC BISCHOFF MADE WCW THE NUMBER 1 COMPANY IN THE WORLD ON THE PLANET.
In the world on the planet? Ummm what? And yes, WCW reigned supreme for a bit because the stars of its show were those cast off and built up on the WWE product and they did so building off the rivalry of WWF, they didn’t do anything original.
VINCE RUSSO WAS RUNNING WCW WHEN IT DIED.
Russo was actually responsible for the NWO, so you’re actually mistaken on that one.
YOU CALL PEOPLE WHO GO ON THE INTERNET WHO COMPLAIN ABOUT WRESTLING AS TROLLS
An Internet troll is actually a common term, I’m not calling them Trolls, I’m calling them internet trolls, there’s a difference.
YOU SHOULDINT CALL PEOPLE NAMES BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT A VERY INTELLIGENT PERSON YOURSELF
Well you are right, it is not nice to call people names and I should be more mature in that fashion, in regards to my intelligence, I think I’m doing okay, Mr. Poopy Pants.
THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO COMPLAIN AT LEAST THEY CARE BECAUSE AS OF RIGHT NOW THE WRESTLING INDUSTRY IS DEAD.
This statement bothers me, dead? Millions of viewers? Constant attendance to live shows, networks, movies, hundreds of wishes fulfilled at make-a-wish? That’s Dead?
ITS GOING IN THE WAY OF BOXING.
I think you mean Baseball, more people watch WWE than watch Baseball, you know,
’s past time. America
YOU SAY THE WWE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR 60 YEARS NOT TRUE WWE WAS THE WWWF IT WAS VINCE SENIOR A BETTER MAN THEN HIS SON.
Well it’s the same company so, still 60 years, yes it was founded by his father, but its still the same company that his son has kept going, and his son will keep going after him.
YOU SAY VINCE MCMAHON KNOWS MORE ABOUT THE BUSINESS THEN ANYONE ELSE THATS COMPLETE AND UTER BULLSHIT AND YOU KNOW JOHN KINDELAN
I’m sorry is there another wrestling promotion still going on right now that is as successful? What is Uter? Is that a German term?
I’M 31 YEARS OLD I USED TO WATCH WRESTLING IN THE 80'S I KNOW A NUMBER OF PROMOTERS WHO WERE BETTER AND ARE STILL BETTER THEN YOUR BOYFRIEND VINCE MCMAHON.
I’m 40 years old, I’ve been watching longer, and I worked in the cable industry for 10 years and was responsible for a great deal of pay per views getting on television in the
Western New York area. There are no other promoters still
around, that have had the success of shows like Vince and the WWE. He’s not my
boyfriend, it’s strictly platonic, we’re lunch buddies.
VINCE MCMAHON KILLED THE INDUSTRY IN THE MID 90'S AND NOW AS OF TODAY THE YEAR 2012 WRESTLING'S FUTURE IS BLEAK
This is perhaps your second dumbest comment the mid 90s gave us Stone Cold Steve Austin, DX, The Rock, Mick Foley and The Undertaker legends and well loved throughout the world.
I KNOW YOUR A FAN CAUGHT UP IN IT YOU HAVE BAD TASTE AS WELL I SEE A DAY JOHN KINDELAN WHERE THE WWE WONT BE AROUND AND ITS COMING SOON. IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ME RIGHT ME BACK
I am a fan, caught up in it? No, just enjoy it. Bad taste? Maybe. Its awesome that you can predict the future but Internet trolls, like yourself, who can’t shut off caps lock, spell or form a sentence have been spitting that sentence out for the past 60 years.
